The Delta State Government has debunked the statement of former Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan that the incumbent Ifeanyi Okowa-led administration is on a vindictive mission to bulldoze his legacies as governor.
Briefing journalists on Tuesday in Asaba, the Commissioner for Information, Mr. Patrick Ukah, said that though it is not the style of the State Government to respond to fallacious claims, “we owe the public the duty to set the record straight particularly when such lies spilled by a former Governor who this administration has given his dues and respect.”
Ukah regretted that “Uduaghan, who has been in government since 1999 under the platform of PDP, also a governor for two tenures, has today turned against PDP after his recent defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) with the aspiration to become a Senator.”
The Commissioner noted that “Dr. Uduaghan needs to do more to convince Deltans that his desperate desire to become a senator should not make him feed the public with lies about non-existent legacy projects.”
Continuing, he said: “More so, Deltans and Nigerians who visit the state daily are aware that the former Governor has no legacies in his eight years in government thus his day-dreaming claims to legacy project will not fly.
“We challenge Uduaghan to tell the world about the said legacy project he claimed to have left behind which this government has destroyed.
“Besides, Governor Okowa is cleaning up his mess now and he is trying to damage the good work of Okowa. We have concluded to send Okowa back in 2019 to complete his good work, adding also that the election primaries will be free and fair, we have subjected to free and fair primaries, we reserve our comment on issues of legacy project, we also wish him well in his new party and we are not here to join issue with our past governor.”
